Ok, I’m off the Hyyge yarn and crochet for a bit. It’s time to go down the knitting rabbit hole!
I’m really enjoying making these double brim knitted hats right now. They’re very beginner friendly. I’m on a faux fur pom pom kick right now (I’m even learning how to make them), but you can skip that part and the hat’s are still beautiful without them.
I’ve included a list of all the materials, some of which are affiliate links (you know the drill). I hope you enjoy this simple little knitting project. If you have any questions, feel free to hit me up on here or my social media for answers. Enjoy 🙂

Closing up the hat
Draw through remaining stitches around. Pull tight and bring your tail through to the inside of the hat. Make as many knots as you need till the hat feels secure. Weave the end and trim the tail.
Attaching pom pom
Attach the pom pom to the outside top, tie a few knots from the inside of the hat
